The world can be divided into two types of people: those who embrace the word “self-care” and those who roll their eyes at it.

Psychologist and author Ellen Bard is here to defend it from the latter group and explain the value of being in the former group.

So first off: Self-care simply means “taking accountability for your own emotional, mental, and physical health,” in her words.

It doesn’t have to mean expensive and time-consuming activities; it can be as simple as a snack, a nap, or a hug.

Addressing these needs, says Bard, will almost certainly boost your creativity and prevent burnout.

Learn how to figure out what your needs are and your obstacles to fulfilling them in her guest post at The Creative Penn.
